A middle level disturbance over northern WA has generated an area of middle
level cloud over the NT. Embedded thunderstorms are evident on the western flank
of this cloud mass and can be attributed to a series of low pressure troughs in
the area.

Low to middle level cloud over southeast Queensland is moving offshore as the
surface trough continues towards the northern Tasman Sea.

A moist southerly onshore over southeast Australia has produced areas of low
cloud. Convective clouds are observed in the cold air mass behind a weakening
cold front east of Tasmania.

Patchy cloud remains over central and southern WA as a result of a surface
trough near the west coast.
